You are awesome. I asked that question a few days ago and got no answer and this was EXACTLY the info I was looking for. Can I tell you that I love you and not sound weird doing it? Ah, who cares. I love you! - Gen :)

I don't believe that specific song actually appears in the theatrically released version of the film.

Even if it does, as a registered unpublished musical work, it would have effectively been published within the film, which would mean it was published with a 1959 copyright notice. This could render the renewal invalid.

Did you mean, perhaps, to send that to Video Cellar and not me, as he's the one who provided its status?
